|My Foster Care JourneyPosted: 26 Aug 2009 08:40 PM PDT
My mother had it rough. Five kids all almost after one another, with a man who wasn’t around. My dad was a good guy, at heart he just made bad choices. Selfish ones. I was 18 months when I was placed in foster care.
|Foster children need compassion better than medicationPosted: 26 Aug 2009 08:35 PM PDT
Children in state care have lost everything: their families, their security and their identity, so it’s natural for them to be sad, depressed and angry against their circumstances.
|Miami appeals court grapples with adoption by gaysPosted: 26 Aug 2009 08:27 PM PDT
A Miami appeals court that will help decide the fate of Florida’s ban on adoption by gay people grilled lawyers on both sides of the dispute Wednesday as it grappled with a thorny question: Does the law protect children from a risky lifestyle, or merely punish a group lawmakers dislike?
|The Teddy Bear Attorney: Providing Comfort to Children in Court SystemPosted: 26 Aug 2009 08:29 PM PDT
Note: “No! You can’t have your parents, but you can have a teddy bear.”

|CPS updates guidelines on children, sex diseasesPosted: 26 Aug 2009 07:53 PM PDT
Child Protective Services will take a more aggressive approach to protecting children and their siblings in suspected cases of child abuse when a child tests positive for a sexually transmitted disease, the agency said.
|Ron Paul: Kennedy Death to Push ReformPosted: 26 Aug 2009 07:50 PM PDT
I think that what Ron Paul is saying about emotionalism is a factor in the workings of the Child Protective Industry as well. People blindly support them because they all love kids and believe that CPS is protecting abused and neglected children. This is simply not the case.
They are playing off the emotions of good people and manufacturing support for their cause.
Propaganda is an art.
|Fremont Family Law attorney explains the juvenile dependency court processPosted: 26 Aug 2009 07:29 PM PDT
Fremont Family Law attorney explains the juvenile dependency court process.
Juvenile dependency is the process by which a child is removed from his or her parent’s custody and care, and is declared a “dependent of the court”. These cases often involve children who have been abandoned, neglected or injured by their parents, foster parents or legal guardians. Juvenile dependency cases may also be brought when parents or caretakers are unable to meet the needs of a special needs child.
|Canadian Rape & INJUSTICE for allPosted: 26 Aug 2009 07:21 PM PDT
Preview of several Canadian cases of Child Protective Services and the Judges and lawyers connected to Children who have been habitually raped and beaten in the “Care” of the Canadian “Authorities”.

|“Mean” Foster ParentsPosted: 26 Aug 2009 11:45 AM PDT
Heartland foster child told investigators he was hurt when he fell off his bike, but officers say the hand print shaped injury on the boy’s cheek told a different story.
The 4-year-old boy’s foster parents originally said he had run into a door in their home. A second story of an out of control boy who fell against a dresser, investigators say, did not match the physical evidence either.
|Caseloads for social workers called too highPosted: 26 Aug 2009 08:40 AM PDT
